    Nice work Joel, practice sessions are good.:nod
    Jimmy's basic drills are good, I've been practicing his methods for a year and a half.

    Great spot for practice. Sito's wash is great for training. Post up the next run, my cobwebs are growing rust.

    I'm in for any training ride. It takes about an hour in the dirt before I get my "dirt legs" and start to trust the tires to hook up. I"d like to find a patch of dirt near Santa Monica where I could do drills. I started riding when I turned 63 and took off on this trip: www.trippinwithrickclick.blogspot.com with a TW200.

    Sounds good, I got really sick there for a bit and didn't know what was up when I kept losing my balance on the bike. Just getting back on two wheels after almost a year so I'm sure my daughter would love to get out. :deal

    Hey everyone. I'm from Fullerton and I'm new to the forum and new to adventure riding. I've been riding road bikes for the past 8 years and have enjoyed the local canyons. I'm now interested in adding a little off-road to the mix! I ride a G650GS and am having a blast with it.

    I'll be here looking for good routes to ride and hope to see some of you out there someday! :freaky

    in my situation, i never take things for granted. i ride while i can and like you said, one will never know.

    hang in there duane.


    that's a nice bike and suitable for roads that we normally travel on.

    9055, you're in the right place and we plan to do the annual carrizo/pozo next january....still have the time to buy a warm sleeping bag...:D
